Each year, pride season serves as a moment of both ongoing protest and a dynamic celebration of the resilience, resourcefulness, and sheer fight that characterizes global LGBTQI+ communities. The 2023 pride season was no different – for Rainbow Railroad, the summer called us to reflect simultaneously on a current surge in state-sponsored anti-queer hostilities around the world and on a timely upswing in opportunities to rise above the onslaught. It was also a time for us to celebrate, reflect, engage, advocate, and gather together with you, our supporters, who make our work possible.
The report serves as an update on key developments that made our 2023 Pride season, one of the most memorable ever – which would not have been possible without your commitment, engagement, and support. You can download the full report here, or dive deep into our results below.
